  1. Post your Voltmeter mount pics

    My first attempt at fitting a voltmeter involved using this rather 'Radio Shack' looking, multi-LED device, which I mounted on the bracket for the heated grips controller ... https://photos.app.goo.gl/vMW1SsPPKsr2kizj2 https://photos.app.goo.gl/OQ2qt5ao9mZqSDMx2 However, it was hard to read and so I finally decided to take the plunge and have a hole cut in the right hand side fairing, so that my brother could kindly fit this one for me ... https://photos.app.goo.gl/lCy9JIPPUBlyAtq43 It is easy to read and very conveniently covers over a spot where I spilled some brake fluid on the paintwork .
  2. Thanks for the info, but to be honest I am only looking for a cheap upgrade . There are loads of LED bulbs out there for a couple of quid, which claim to fit most pre-2000 vehicles, but I'd rather hear from someone who's already tried a few (if possible).
  3. Simple question, but is there a simple answer !? I have a European spec 5th generation VFR800 and I am wondering if there might be reliable and effective replacement LED bulbs available for the indicator lights (382 type bulbs) and the stop/tail lamps (380 type). Does anyone have any experience with trying LED bulbs in these positions and if so, did it work without modification, or fail to work? Links to specific bulbs/sellers would also be useful. Thanks, in advance, for your input .
  4. What is it about VFR air filters that mice find so very attractive ? ... Luckily, none of those air filters were from my VFR , but it just goes to show what a great mouse house that plastic box under the tank makes. The air intake scoop at the front of the filter is like a posh little 'porch' to them and they can't wait to move in, it seems . Anyway, the moral of this story is ... if you haven't checked the air filter on your VFR in the last few years (or ever) , go and have a look ... soon .
  5. Speedo error

    My (standard) VFR is around 6% over the GPS reading - about standard for any modern vehicle !

    I was too afraid to cut holes in my lovely new (to me) VFR800, so I decided to go 'old school' and fit an LED voltmeter to the mounting bracket for my heated grips. The end result may look a bit 'Radio Shack', but I think that the two units match each other very well and that the LEDs don't really look out of place next to the heated grip control. YMMV , of course.
